a continuing series of ever increasing oddities, part XVI

she shuddered
in her blanket coccon
not unlike
the butterfly
but she was not trying
to break free


she was burrowing
further in

as the waves
against the buildings
around her
like rolling thunder
down the litter strewn streets
she found herself
deeper and deeper
into the spiralling malaise
that threatened
to swallow
her ever dimming light

above it all
the clouds spiralled themselves
around the eye
with the entirety
of the cosmos
in its gaze
